A source hinted this reporter that the shootings were still on at the time of this report, while over 15 houses have been razed by the gunmen.

This attack occurred after Senator Barnabas Gemade backed the call by a former Minister of Defence, TY Danjuma for Nigerians to defend themselves.

Danjuma had called on Nigerians, especially people of Taraba state, to defend themselves against rampaging Fulani herdsmen.

He added that there was an ongoing cleansing of his ethnic group, Tiv.

Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly yesterday Gemade said, “This country is becoming a state without control. It is a state in which we have seen ethnic cleansing.

“It is a shame that a sitting government could watch criminality go to the level that we have seen it today.

“Rather than rise up and take very decisive steps against it, we embark on denials and shield this evil by just explaining, with flimsy excuses, that these are communal clashes between communities.
